Multicore Debug Evolves To The System-Level | Ann Steffora Mutschler, Semiconductor Engineering

The proliferation and expansion of multicore architectures is making debug much more difficult and time-consuming, which in turn is increasing demand for more comprehensive system-level tools and approaches.

Multicore/multiprocessor designs are the most complex devices to debug. More interactions and interdependencies between cores mean more things possibly can go wrong. In fact, so many problems are possible that engineering teams frequently wonder where to begin. Compared with single-core, multiple-core designs include more execution streams to debug at the same time. In addition, instructions are executed in each thread, and complex interactions occur between each core.
